March finishes!

I had a couple more hours to get something finished, so I basted and started quilting my Half-pint. I did NOT like the way it looked, so I ripped out the stitching, and will go back to the drawing board. I'm still not sure what to do with it. Any and all suggestions are welcome. I had decided to do diagonal lines through the nine-patch blocks, but it didn't look right. The tension was off on my stitching, so it was very easy to rip out!

On to the successes:



This is called It's a Bling Thing, which I did in a class at the LQS. I showed a sneak preview on Friday Night Sew-in, and it's made from the fabric in my header photo. My lighting is so bad at night, but I attempted to get a picture of the chenille that is on the diamond intersections. It still needs a little more 'fluffing'.


I didn't have quite enough fabric for the binding on this Rail Fence, so off to the quilt store again!



Fiona, my sewing machine, HATED this table runner. It took me forever to get this tiny little thing quilted, and by the time it was finished, I hated it too. But, It's a finish!!



And this little guy isn't a quilt finish, but it is a finish, made with leftover yarn from another project, and completed the night before a baby shower!



Ahhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! Hubby and friend are working on his computer, and they pulled the plug on the cable just as I hit post! Fortunately, everyting was saved. Now off to do some surfing and see everyone else's finishes!
